# 2. Add the Image label to Magento 2 Products
If you want to attract more attention to your novelties, you can highlight them with catchy labels. Our Product Labels extension allows you to use pre-made labels, upload any image your designer has created, or set up a custom option via built-in editor:
Besides, you can also inform users about products on sale, low in stock, with free shipping, and about other beneficial deals to stimulate demand. The extension allows you to show specific labels to different customer groups. Set up conditions for labels to automate promotions. Say, you can display a label On Sale for all the red items in your catalog. The possibilities of Magento 2 image labels are limited only by your imagination.
